Lyrics

Nous, c'était du bleu
Un ciel d'été, un océan transparent
Nous, nous étions deux
Et l'on s'aimait à faire arrêter le temps

Mais le temps nous a trahis
Alors pourquoi m'avoir promis la terre entière?
Notre amour aurait suffi
Je ne voulais pas d'un bonheur imaginaire
Si la vie est cadeau

Si la vie est un cadeau
Cadeau donné, cadeau repris, cadeau volé
Prends l'amour comme un cadeau
Cadeau donné, cadeau repris, cadeau volé
Le bonheur est trop court

Nous, c'était l'enfant que je voulais
Pour te l'offrir au printemps

Mais le temps a tous les droits
Alors pourquoi m'avoir promis la terre entière
Et l'enfant qui n'est pas là?
C'est aujourd'hui mon seul bonheur imaginaire
Si la vie est cadeau

Si la vie est un cadeau
Cadeau donné, cadeau repris, cadeau volé
Prends l'amour comme un cadeau
Cadeau donné, cadeau repris, cadeau volé
Le bonheur est trop court

(Si la vie est un cadeau)

We, we were blue
A summer sky, a transparent ocean
We, we were two
And when we loved each other, time stood still

But time betrayed us
So why did you promise me the whole world?
Our love would have been enough
I didn't want an imaginary happiness
If life is a gift

If life is a gift
Given gift, recovered gift, stolen gift
Take love as a gift
Given gift, recovered gift, stolen gift
Happiness is too short

We, it was the child that I wanted
To give it to you in springtime

But time has all the rights
So why did you promise me the whole world
And the child that isn't there?
Today is my only imaginary happiness
If life is a gift

If life is a gift
Given gift, recovered gift, stolen gift
Take love as a gift
Given gift, recovered gift, stolen gift
Happiness is too short

(If life is a gift)
